A few handling and care recommendations

Nature offers us the most alluring and valuable materials of everlasting beauty. To ensure that your treasured pieces will never lose their charm, we recommend that you observe the following tips on how to handle and care for your jewelry.

A few handling recommendations

You live with your jewelry. It is part of your life, and life leaves its marks.
In the event that you’ve accidentally knocked a piece of jewelry heavily against a hard object, we recommend that you have the piece concerned and the diamonds examined by an expert. Even if a diamond is the hardest mineral on earth, its hardness depends on the crystal orientation inside the stone, which is not the same throughout, and it is particularly fissile along the octahedral cleavage planes. So even a diamond can be damaged.

Before you put on your jewelry, we suggest that you first check that the clasps and mechanical elements are functioning flawlessly. It’s advisable to keep your arm over a tabletop when you put on a bracelet, to prevent it from falling to the ground.

Your jewelry should ideally be stored on a soft material. Also, each piece should be protected from any mechanical effects, including those exerted by other pieces of jewelry. In particular, when you clap hands, there’s a risk of two rings colliding and being severely damaged.

If a piece of your jewelry has been damaged, you can ask your jeweler to send it to Henrich & Denzel for repair and servicing.

A few notes on jewelry care

If your jewelry is merely slightly stained or tarnished, you can clean it yourself, using a soft microfiber cloth or a soft brush, if necessary, and water.
Your jeweler will gladly help you to preserve your jewelry’s value, providing expert advice and professional cleaning services, using an ultrasonic bath, for example.
We hope you’ll enjoy your piece of Henrich & Denzel jewelry.
